16 Funny Tweets From Parents Who Are Just Trying To Survive Kid Sports


While we parents love encouraging our kids to “get out there & play!”, enrolling them into sports programs can be a time-consuming endeavor.

And let’s not overlook the biggest hassle- basically living in your car the entire season as you chauffeur your kids to and from every sporting event.


These parents of Twitter are all too familiar with the stress of managing kids in sports, and have a hilarious way of sharing it!

  1. Even tackling the sign-up process for a sports program can be complicated.
